Top 10 Human Snacks that Are Great For Dogs

Whenever I am in the kitchen doing something, I can guarantee one of my doggies will be there patiently waiting for some food to be handed to them. It is hard to hold back giving them everything I eat especially since my dogs have trained puppy eyes. 😛


While sharing snacks with your dogs can be a delightful experience, it’s important to ensure that the treats you offer them are safe and healthy for them.


Here’s a 10 human snacks that are not only delicious but also safe for dogs in moderation:


1. Carrots

Crunchy and low in calories, carrots are an excellent snack for dogs. You can give then raw or do a quick steam as well. They are packed with vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, which promotes eye health.


2. Apple Slices

Remove the seeds and core, then slice up some apple for a sweet and nutritious treat. Apples are rich in fiber, vitamins A and C, and antioxidants.


3. Blueberries

These tiny berries are a powerhouse of nutrition for both humans and dogs. They are full with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C, making them a great addition to your pup’s diet.


4. Watermelon

Remove the seeds and rind, then offer your dog a few pieces of fresh watermelon. This hydrating fruit is low in calories and contains vitamins A, B6, and C, as well as potassium.


5. Bananas

Rich in potassium and vitamins, bananas make a tasty and healthy snack for dogs. They are also a good source of fiber and can help support digestion. 


6. Plain Popcorn

Skip the butter and salt, and offer your dog plain, air-popped popcorn as an occasional treat. It’s a low-calorie snack that can be enjoyed by dogs in moderation.


7. Cooked Sweet Potatoes

Cooked sweet potatoes are a nutritious treat for dogs, packed with vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Just make sure to serve them plain and without any added seasoning.


8. Plain Greek Yogurt

A spoonful of plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt can be a tasty and probiotic-rich treat for dogs. It’s a good source of calcium and protein, but be mindful of lactose intolerance in some dogs.


9. Pumpkin

Plain, canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) is a nutritious snack for dogs, especially for those with digestive issues. It’s rich in fiber and vitamins and can help regulate bowel movements.


10. Cooked Chicken or Turkey

Plain, cooked chicken or turkey can be a protein-rich snack for dogs. Avoid seasoning or adding any sauces, and be sure to remove any bones before offering it to your pup.



So there you have it… these don’t seem too bad at all. You know the old saying everything in moderation and also remember to always introduce new foods gradually. If you have any concerns for your dog’s diet, please ensure to consult with your veterinarian. 


I can speak for myself and dogs that these 10 food are their favorite, particularly apples.
